SE24 is delighted to welcome our new Volunteer Manager, Dave Rinaldi.
Dave lives in Southwark, and has over 16 years experience in the charity sector as a Volunteering Coordinator and Manager, and Project Manager. He also has 4 years of experience as a volunteer Community Mediator, helping neighbours in dispute to resolve their differences through empathic talking and listening and practical problem solving, to help the parties in dispute to come up with solutions that meet the needs of them both.
He currently works 4 days a week at a community centre in Rotherhithe, South London, alongside his 1 day a week at SE24. He enjoys working at a community and neighborhood level, and is keen to support SE24’s work to bring local people together to take positive, practical action to tackle the climate crisis.
Dave’s initial focus will be on exploring ways that volunteers can support SE24’s work by:
- helping with lighting surveys for our LED project (see role profile here)
- delivering climate education and engagement work in local schools, and
- helping to run our fuel poverty campaign to encourage those in receipt of Winter Fuel Payments, who can afford to, to donate some or all of it to a community fund, which will be re-distributed to local people who are in fuel poverty.
If you would like to get involved in any of these 3 areas (or to give your time to support SE24 in other ways) then please get in touch with Dave, on [email protected]. He’d love to hear from you.
Please bear with us though, as Dave works at SE24 for one day a week (usually on Fridays), so he may take some time to get back to you: this does not mean we are not keen to have you on board.”
